Mother Of Two Pours Acid On Man For This Reason

Idukki: Police arrested a 35-year-old woman and a mother of two on Saturday for throwing acid on a man who allegedly turned down her proposal of marriage.

The victim Arun Kumar (28) from Thiruvanthapuram is undergoing treatment at the medical college hospital here. Kumar may lose his eyesight after accused Sheeba flung acid on his face on November 16, according to the cops.

“Doctors say that he may lose his eyesight. They met through Facebook, but later he came to know that she was married and is the mother of two children. He wanted to end the relationship, but she tried to blackmail him and demanded money,” the police were quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

According to police, Kumar and his brother-in-law and friend visited a church near Adimali on November 16 where he met the accused to give the amount she asked for.

A CCTV footage from the church premises showed Sheeba, who was standing behind Kumar, come forward to fling acid on his face. She too suffered some minor injuries in the process.

A case was filed in the matter and Sheeba was arrested, the cops said.
